With the idea of making art exclusive yet common and affordable, Kumarika along with her husband Prashant are trying to create a brand with distinctive and beautiful range of home decor & stationery products. Kumarika, having done her masters in fine arts, loves experimenting with colors and techniques. Prashant is a self taught artist and a photographer who loves doing marbling!
Born from passion and emotions for art, Rangreli is home to handcrafted, hand-painted, one of a kind unique products. Rangreli which means “a string of colours” was founded on the belief that extraordinary design is more than just an item. It is an imitation of nature and a feeling that is evoked when you discover your next great find. The products are a celebration of that idea created by bringing unexpected contrasts together.
As an artist, Kumarika always felt the uncanny need to combine art with various products. She thought of bringing art to a place inside the home where it is not only hung on walls but can be seen in utility products. Thus came the idea of “Utility Art”. Kumarika and Prashant have developed several new products and designs for Zwende's customers which went on to become best sellers. The creative freedom, designer first and collaborative approach at Zwende enabled Rangreli to quickly expand their portfolio into several new categories and collections.
Kumarika and Prashant also conduct several quick workshops and masterclasses both online and offline at Zwende. Their marbling workshop is one of the most fun workshops on offer at Zwende.
